See below for dance description

Group courses begin with Level I for beginners and advance in difficulty with each level. Classes are designed to progress each week building on the previous week’s material.  Each class will begin with a review of the previous week’s material before progressing.  With this method, a participant may miss 1 class and still be able to participate comfortably.  It is not necessary to bring your own partner, as participants rotate partners regularly to focus on  "lead & follow" while reinforcing foot patterns and creating muscle memory.
